Yesteryear heroine Vani Viswanath who recently confirmed her entry into politics by joining Telugu Desham Party will lock horns with her contemporary actress and YSR Congress Party firebrand RK Roja.
The duo will be contesting in Roja’s constituency Nagari, which is in Chandrababu Naidu’s home district Chittoor. While Vani is ready to contest from anywhere in the state, TDP wants to cash in on her acting career to reduce the charm of the Jabardasth TV show judge.
Following the defeat in Nandyal and Kakinada elections, speculations were rife that Roja had to face the heat for her reckless comments on the ruling party leaders and became the scapegoat for loss.
However, a former minister and YSRCP leader dismissed the rumors that Roja was not queried or was sought explanation. He even advised that the charisma of the actor-cum-politician has not faded a bit evident from the way she is attracting people wherever she goes.
Another YSRCP leader asked if Roja has lost charm, why is TDP planning to launch Vani to counter her.
Speaking of her peer Roja, Vani said that the if they contest against each other it will be political rivalry and nothing personal.
